Cannot change HDFS ACLs

avatar

Hi guys,

 

I was playind around with ACLs on a test cluster and set them recursively on /user to others::r-- instead of others::r-x. Then I wanted to change it back on /user/hive/warehouse but no matter what I do I cannot change them:

 

hdfs dfs -getfacl /user/hive/warehouse
# file: /user/hive/warehouse
# owner: hive
# group: hive
user::rwx
user:hive:rwx
group::---
group:hive:rwx
mask::rwx
other::--x

 

hdfs dfs -setfacl -m group::rwx /user/hive/warehouse

 

hdfs dfs -getfacl /user/hive/warehouse
# file: /user/hive/warehouse
# owner: hive
# group: hive
user::rwx
user:hive:rwx
group::---
group:hive:rwx
mask::rwx
other::--x

 

It always remains the same, I cannot change anything at all... Any ideas?
